The 40-Day Journey with Joan Chittister introduces Joan Chittister, a Benedictine nun who lives in Erie, Pennsylvania and is best known for her spiritual writing and her powerful actions for peace and justice.
The 40-Day Journey series invites readers to take a personal spiritual journey with a Christian leader from the past or present. Each book begins with a short introduction to the life of the leader and then offers forty chapters, each of which includes a reading from the subject's writings, scripture selections from the Bible, a journal-writing exercise, and a prayer. Each book is a rich resource for personal meditation or small group discussion anytime, but is especially valuable during Advent or Lent.

Joan Chittister doesn't know me. However, I feel like I know her and am deeply indebted to her for providing me with the inspiration to act faithfully in a world that doesn't much respect such action. I look forward to spending these 40 days with Chittister to see how she will lead me in understanding more deeply what it means to live out what one believes about the Holy's intent for us in this life.
